Youth Team/Cup

Recommended Posts

Yep. Excellent game to watch. Good to see a number of newer faces too.

 

I thought James McConnell was fantastic in the second half - seemed to get stronger and stronger as the game went on. Terrence Miles had a solid game in the middle of the park, while Stefan Bajcetic also impressed at centre-half alongside Lee Jonas. Both fullbacks were good too.

 

I thought Tommy Pilling had a good game. Got into some good areas and played some nice passes to try and create opportunities. Not quite got the physicality to play game after game at the 18s level just yet, but you can see the lad has a footballing brain.

Leicester 0 Liverpool 1

 

An hour played and we've just gone in front - Waiting for confirmation of the goalscorer.

 

EDIT: Woodburn with the goal, but as usual, AIG beat me to it...

We thought we'd got a second, but it looks like it has been chalked off.

 

FlashScore notifications have gone a little crazy these last few minutes or so...

Leicester 0 Liverpool 2

 

As AIG says, we have now doubled our lead with 89 minutes on the clock.

 

A little note that Kaide Gordon came on for Ben Woodburn in the 71st minute to make his debut for the 23s.

 

EDIT: A debut goal for Kaide Gordon! (Get him on the bus for the first team on Thursday...!)

Full time 2-0

A fair reward for our toil last week playing 10 against 12 for 85 minutes. Nice touch to allow Jack Walls a few minutes off the bench in his last game before we release him for the third time.

Full-time - Leicester 0 Liverpool 2

 

Good way to finish off the season. A couple of goals, a clean sheet and a debut & debut goal for Kaide Gordon.

How's Dixon-Bonner progressing? At points I've watched him and seen rampaging CM potential, but he seems to have been around for ages. 

He isn't progressing. The experiment of having him fill in on the right of the front three didn't work either. Hopefully he's loaned somewhere next year, as far from Inglethorpe as possible.

As AIG has intimated, Elijah has stalled somewhat and would really benefit from a loan move next season. I'd suggest a club in League One will be his ceiling at the moment.

 

I think he's been a bit of a victim of his versatility due to his athleticism. He's made appearances in a number of positions and roles this season which has seemingly hindered his progress. It may well serve him well later in his career, but right now it looks to be to his detriment. 

 

They obviously hold him in fairly high regard as he has captained the 23s this season.

Half time, Ipswich 1-0

In stoppage time at the end of the first half, a cross from the left is headed down and fumbled in to the net by Harvey Davies.

That's really their first chance, we switched off at the back and they took advantage.

Not a good first half. We haven't really started playing as we're capable of.

 

Musialowski having one of his in & out games. Too many touches at times, poor passing, but looks to be the player who might create something with his directness.

 

Awful goalkeeping by Harvey at the end there.
